: It's not that I dislike you. Tess
: You don't have to spare my feelings. Nasedo taught me not to get wrapped up in... this. It's not really who I am. I'm not human. Neither are you. Max
: It's the only life I've ever known. Tess
: That's not true. You lived another life, Max... a life completely different from this one... a life when you loved me. Max
: I don't remember that. Tess
: I do.
: Kind of uptight about nudity, aren't you, for a guy who reads Jugs? Kyle
: Give me that. Tess
: Oh... the post-its? Nice touch.
: Buddhism for Beginners is also under your bed. How do you think the Buddha would feel about being sandwiched between Hustler and Busty Biker Babes?
: You know my... my father does consider this to be a very temporary arrangement. You understand that? Tess
: Sure. Kyle
: All right. So in that case, I just wanted to tell you that I moved all my crap out of the room. You can have it. I'll sleep on the couch or something. Tess
: You didn't have to. Kyle
: It's not a big deal. Uh, material possessions only clutter the mind anyway. Tess
: You tell 'em, Buddha-boy.
: Morning. Kyle
: Yes, morning. What the hell are you doing here? Tess
: I live here. Calvin Klein? I approve.
: Max loves you. Every time we were together, every time we kissed he was thinking of you. He had these flashes that I saw and they were always of you. Liz Parker
: Why are you telling me this? Tess Harding
: Because I know how much it must have hurt you. Liz Parker
: So you're really going to go do this? Tess Harding
: At least I can do one good thing with my life. Liz Parker
: You just did.
: [as Tess tries to leave the room
] Sit... down! Tess Harding
: [points at her injured leg
] I guess it would be too much to ask you to heal this? Max Evans
: Making you feel better is not one of my priorities
: [Max, and Tess with the baby, enter Michael's apartment. Michael is sitting watching television, but jumps to his feet, incredulous, when he sees her, and raises his hand to blast her...
] Tess, you are not here! Max Evans
: [rushes forward to get between Tess and Michael
] Michael, no! Michael Guerin
: Maxwell, get out of the way. Max Evans
: Not until you calm down. Michael Guerin
: Whatever she told you, she's lying. Max Evans
: She has my son. Michael Guerin
: Well, get the baby out of the way. Max Evans
: No, he needs her. If you kill her, my son will die. Michael Guerin
: [Hesitates, but backs off
] Max, what the hell's she doin' here? Max Evans
: It's a long story. But we need to get them out of Roswell. Michael Guerin
: Yeah. My heart bleeds. Tess Harding
: Nice to see you, too, Michael. Max Evans
: [warning Tess
] Hey, don't start.
[He reaches down to take the baby from her
] Michael Guerin
: [Outside Michael's apartment, Liz arrives. She preens and smiles as she reaches for the door, eagerly anticipating her evening with Max.Inside, Tess has just finished telling her story to Michael
] Oh, so you're the one that crashed in the desert the other night. Tess Harding
: You always were the quick one, Guerin. Liz Parker
: [Suddenly Tess is blasted through the air. She lands hard in the adjoining room and Max and Michael are shocked. They look back towards the door
] Get up, bitch!
[Liz's outstretched hand crackles with green sparks. Without waiting, Liz blasts Tess again, knocking her back into the wall as a stunned Max and Michael watch for a moment in disbelief
] Liz Parker
: I'll kill you! Max Evans
: - Liz- -No-
[Max quickly hands the baby to Michael and lunges to stop Liz
] Liz Parker
: You're a murderer! I'll kill you! Max Evans
[Max restrains Liz and pulls her outside onto the patio
] Max Evans
: [Tess has a stunned look on her face because of her not knowing about Liz's powers
] Michael Guerin
: [smirking at Tess
] ... Welcome back.
: [Liz walks out just as Kyle is coming in
] Gee, Liz. Is everything okay?
[Liz just blows on past him
] Kyle Valenti
: ... 'guess not... Tess Harding
: Kyle! Thank God you're here! Kyle Valenti
: [comes into the room, but paces back and forth in front of Tess, frowning
] Don't come near me. Tess Harding
: [obviously sad
] Kyle, at least give me a chance to explain! Kyle Valenti
: [to Michael
] Why haven't you killed her yet? Michael Guerin
: Max wouldn't let me. Max Evans
: [Max comes up and takes the baby away from Tess
] Come on, Zan, - I don't want you to see this... Tess Harding
: Be careful with him, Max. Kyle Valenti
: So, what are you doing here? Tess Harding
: Ask one of them, I'm sick of explaining. Kyle Valenti
: Okay, why don't you explain what the hell you were doing at our house earlier. Tess Harding
: I thought you'd help me. Kyle Valenti
: Then why'd you run away in such a hurry? Tess Harding
: I was protecting my son. Kyle Valenti
: He wasn't in danger! Tess Harding
: Your father had a gun! Instincts took over! You're lucky I didn't kill you! Kyle Valenti
: [laughs ironically
] Oh... I guess I owe you one. Oh, actually... No. Tess Harding
: [Still sad
] Kyle... Kyle Valenti
: We took you into our home, Tess. We protected you. And how did you repay us? You brainwashed me into carrying Alex's dead body! Tess Harding
: I never meant to hurt... Kyle Valenti
: Well, too late! Tess Harding
: You've never even heard my side of the story. Kyle Valenti
: You have a side? The murderer has a side! Tess Harding
: I was raised by a killer, Kyle... a sick and twisted man...! Kyle Valenti
: Don't play the victim here, Tess. You know, of all the aliens I've met... you're the only one who has no soul.
[He walks away from her, leaving her stung and frowning
: Why didn't you vote against me? Liz Parker
: 'Cause I'm not a killer, Tess.
: Thanks... Dad.
[Jim looks at her questioningly
: I just wanted to see what that sounded like. Valenti
: How'd it sound? Tess
: A little too weird.
: You okay? Kyle
: Oh yeah, yeah. It's nothing. Anyway, I just, I don't usually talk about this but uh, my mom left when I was six, and with you being here it's, uh felt like family again. That's all, I don't want to get all weepy or anything. Tess
: Kyle... Kyle I feel the same way.
[after everyone else leaves the Granolith Chamber
: [to Tess
] Did you kill Alex? Tess
: I didn't want to. I wish I hadn't, but I did. Max
: Why? Tess
: Look Max, the-the clock's ticking, we don't really have time... Max
: Tell me why! Tess
: He would have told you what I did and I couldn't let that happen. Max
: So you just, you just killed him? Tess
: I didn't mean to. His brain was just so weakened by the mindwarp, and... look, none of this matters now. Max
: Life matters Tess. My life, your life, his... Tess
: What matters is getting home, but you could never understand that could you? I might have been able to teach you but that stupid bitch had you wrapped around her... Max
: Don't you ever call her that! Tess
: See! Look how fast you run to her defense! Why couldn't you ever feel that about me? I'm your wife, Max! I'm carrying your child! Max
: This was all some kind of plan to get pregnant and go home, wasn't it? Home to what, Tess? To Kivar? To our enemies? Tess
: They're not my enemies, Max. Max
: You made a deal with them, with Kivar. Tess
: No, Nacedo made a deal, 40 years ago. Max
: What was the deal? Tell me! Tess
: To return home with your child, and deliver the three of you to Kivar. Max
: And what would happen to us once you delivered us?
[Tess doesn't answer
: How did I ever fall in love with someone like you? How could I ever marry you? Tess
: You were different - you were a king! Now you're just a boy.
[Max raises his hand to Tess' neck
: You kill me, Max, you kill our son. Max
] Go. This isn't over, Tess
[Max leaves the Granolith chamber
: [Tess kisses Max, and gets a flash of him kissing Liz earlier in the episode
] You kissed Liz. Don't worry. You won't remember her where we're going
: Michael. Micheal
: What's going on? Tess
: What are you talking about? Micheal
: You know what I'm talking about. Nasedo has Liz. Tess
: I didn't know. Micheal
: The hell you didn't. You want us to trust you, but how can we if you don't tell us what you know. Tess
: I can't tell you what I don't know. Micheal
: Hey, Valenti is involved now. If this thing goes the wrong way, he'll know everything, and that puts us all in danger, including you. Now, get in the jeep. Tess
: Michael, you don't know who you're dealing with. Micheal
: No, but you do, and that's why you're coming with us.
: What does he really look like? Tess
: He's never let me see. Never lets me close to him at all. Max
: He's all you've ever had? Tess
: Yeah. Max
: That must have been hard. Tess
: It's been really lonely. He doesn't have a human side at all
: It's not about the four of us right now, it's about Liz. Tess
: Liz is human. She has nothing to do with us.

: You're definitely my favorite human. Kyle
: Yeah, well... you're my favorite Martian.
